This class is the place to start your sailing education. As a U.S. Sailing Accredited Keelboat Sailing School, we host a multi-day course that gives students the skills needed to confidently skipper and crew a day sailing keelboat. We teach on our fleet of Sonar 23 sailboats, a safe and stable platform to learn on. All classes are taught by U.S. Sailing Certified Keelboat Instructors and the maximum class size is 4 students per boat. No prior sailing experience is necessary to enroll.
Each course covers sailing theory, boat handling skills, safety and emergency techniques, anchoring, docking and navigation. The learn to sail class is held between May and October at our Belmont Harbor location. This 20 hour class invloves classroom, dockside and on the water lessons.
